I want to get this silver shiny look on a helmet I'm making and this caker wrote that they used a silver fondant glaze - http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1686078

 

 

What is that glaze and how can we make that? 

 

Any other tips on making it that steely silver color? Use Wilton silver spray? Thank you!

Hi, sending a link. http://www.******************/foglco.html

 

I have the silver, gold and pearl, ONly used the silver once. Did not like it. You paint it on. Some like it. some don,t. I had rather airbrush it , if you have the airbrush, or even dilute the silver dust with everclear, etc. and paint it on. hth

Cover the cake in light grey fondant.  The silver is painted on with a mixture of silver luster dust and some sort of liquor.  I use vodka.  I used the same technique on a R2D2 cake (in my gallery).  I LOVE painting on fondant like this.  It turns out so shiny!

I had to go back and read your post. fcakes, I thought i had answered you wrong. But i see, i didn,t . I thought i read that you said  the person that did this cake said she use the silver glaze, That is why i sent you the links about it and explained it to you. Yes, if you don,t use silver glaze, then use the silver dust diluted with the everclear, etc. And also. airbrush it with the silver airbrushing color. hth
